Mashed potatoes

With their creamy texture and earthy flavor, mashed potatoes are the ultimate side. The best way to cook potatoes for mashing is to peel, slice, and simmer them in lightly salted water. Chunky or smooth, lightened with milk or thickened with cream, mashed potatoes are an all-time favorite side. See our ideas for different ways to prepare and serve.
